Sir Chief-Maya wedding in Nov
MANILA -- After initial reservations to push through with their wedding, the characters of Richard Yap and Jodi Sta. Maria in "Be Careful With My Heart" are finally set to tie the knot in November.
In the episode of the "kilig-serye" aired Friday, Maya (Sta. Maria) is seen visiting a wedding shop where she tries on a veil while holding a bouquet of flowers.
Maya is then seen by her former employer-turned-fiance, whom she now calls "Ricky" as opposed to "Sir Chief," as she practices her marriage vows in front of a mirror.
As shown in a preview of the daytime series' upcoming episode, the couple decide to finally wed in November.
They initially put off the date over a superstition related to the death of Maya's grandmother, Mamang Conchita (Divina Valencia). Eventually, with the approval of her mother, Teresita (Sylvia Sanchez), Maya and Richard decide against delaying their wedding.
Daytime's No. 1
The couple's engagement comes more than a year after the debut telecast of "Be Careful With My Heart," which has since gained a massive following to make it the consistent No. 1 program on daytime TV.
The Jeffrey Jeturian-directed soap continued its winning streak nationwide in the last week of September, according the latest TV ratings data of multi-national market research group Kantar Media.
"Be Careful With My Heart" registered a national TV rating of 20.5% on September 23, while its competing program, GMA-7's "The Ryzza Mae Show," only garnered 13.3%. The Kapamilya show's ratings lead carried over to September 24 (19.9% vs. 10.5%) and 25 (19.9% vs. 11.6%).
Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes, representing 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population.
Airing weekdays before "It's Showtime," "Be Careful With My Heart" also stars Mutya Orquia, Janella Salvador, Jerome Ponce, Gloria Sevailla, Aiza Seguerra, JM Ibanez, Tart Carlos and Vivieka Ravanes.
